im learning to drive at the moment , actually got my test bbooked for the 26th this month
and i obviously being a learner cant go to my lessons barefoot but i found wearing really thin soled shoes helped , im perfect at the whole manual shifting thing now though .
Another thing that can help is turning the music or radio off and listening to the sound the car makes

Attempted to start my GF's dad's 69 Corvette Stingray 427 4-speed stick. Tried charging the battery but I think it's gone, doesn't seem to hold enough of a charge to fully crank the engine.

Looks like it's coming along well! I have my engine done, and the Fox Mustang parked outside. The asshole switched it too donut spares before I picked it up... w/e I need different rims anyway, the other ones were ugly as shit too.

What I need for it... pads and rotors for the rear, then it will be 4 wheel disc, 28 spline 5 lug axles. Front left and right fenders and bumper cover. Tail lights. Tranny X-member. Then I can drop the engine in and take it for a spin. After that, I want to replace the vert top and front seats. And install my trac-loc and 3.73 or 4.10 gears.
